Need more space on your Smartphone

Check your usage

Check which apps are taking the most space on your phone as there are usually some surprise hogs.
For Apple: Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage. At the top you’ll see how much space you’ve used and how much is available. Below you’ll have a more detailed analysis with a list of apps ranked by how much space they are using.
For Android: Go to Settings > SD & phone storage > Internal phone storage > Manage Storage.

Delete unused apps

Don’t keep apps that you don’t use. Every app takes up storage space and runs some kind of background process, which all combines to slow down phone’s performance.
Game apps, which use high quality graphics, can surprisingly take up a lot of space so delete the ones you can’t see yourself using anymore. You can always re-download if you find you need them.

Remove old podcasts and videos

Podcasts and videos take up a lot of space on phones. If you’ve uploaded your videos onto your computer (or another back-up) and
don’t need them on your phone anymore, then delete them. Videos are one of the biggest space hogs.

Use a cloud system to back up photos

The hundreds of photos on our phones can take up quite a sizeable chunk on phone storage. But if you don’t want to take them off your phone, the good news is you don’t have to. Save space and back-up photos by using a cloud storage system such as Dropbox. Your photos will be accessible on the web so you can easily search them up or alternatively many cloud systems have an app to
download, where you can quickly access them.
